Larry Insana / Press

“ CD Review: Larry Insana "Endless Road" This singer-songwriter has been kicking around the local scene for years, opening for acts such as Styx, Ted Nugent and REO Speedwagon. Those classic rock connections notwithstanding, Insana's new album, which local power-pop guy Scott Hanson produced, is a real mellow affair. Opening "Nick of Time" sounds a bit like something Willie Nelson might have penned and "'Til the World Slows Down" is as melancholy as its title. The up-tempo "Blues by Bedpost" benefits from some wailing harmonica and Insana's baritone evokes that of Johnny Cash a bit on the novelty tune "Hot Peppers." The party-hearty tune "The 5th Day" verges on Jimmy Buffett territory, but on the whole this album shows off Insana's terrific songwriting abilities. Recorded in both Cleveland and Miami, Florida, the album sounds great, too, as its production quality is first rat”

“Cleveland’s own Larry Insana complements our city proud. Opening the show for Styx, REO Speed Wagon and Ted Nugent Saturday night at Blossom Music Center, Larry Insana warmed up the crowd with some energetic acoustic original songs. A relatively unknown to the majority of the audience at the start of his set…however by the time he finished the audience acknowledged him with screams and applause as if to say, a seasoned performer has arrived…”

“Jackson Hardware "Always Tuesday" Went out of my way to buy this CD and it was well worth it. I think there are several really strong tracks and I love the stories they tell. Definitely a Neil Young influence that takes me back a few years..... sound is real earthy and meaningful, caught this cd and loved it author: Jim P. all these songs have some kind of a truth to them it seems, like the writer lived each song,which is kinda good to hear.I hit this by accident, but i'm glad i did! keep playing songs author: Ricki Phills all the songs make you feel like they are saying something important, which is a rare quality in this day and age. this is great music in any mood. ”
